If Karan Johar, a brilliant filmmaker who knows the pulse of his audience compliments another filmmaker, then that person 'ought' to be good in every sense! Well, we are talking about Karan Johar complimenting John Abraham, who co-produced Madras Cafe (along with Ronnie Lahiri), that released on August 23. Karan recently took to twitter and praised John's recently released political thriller Madras Cafe.
John Abraham is not only a great looking actor, but also a very clever businessman! John turned producer with Ayushaman Khurrana-Yami Gautam starrer Vicky Donor. The film surprised everybody with its' unique script, some wonderful acting and loads of witty dialogues. The film turned out to be a super hit! Now, by co-producing Madras Cafe, John Abraham has proved that he understands the psyche of his audience very well. Directed by Shoojit Sircar, the film is based on the Sri Lankan civil war.
After watching Madras Cafe, Karan Johar recently tweeted, "Madras Cafe' is intelligent, well-intentioned, spectacularly shot and edge-of-the-seat! A proud film in every department! Superb." The filmmaker went on to add, "John Abraham emerging as the new-age producer of our times. His brand value takes a giant leap."
Though the film was marred by controversies prior to its' release in Tamil Nadu, people from other parts of the country thronged the theatres to watch John who essays the role of a RAW agent and Nargis Fakhri as a war correspondent.
